I'LL BE REUNITED WITH MY BABY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 4 MONTHS IN JUST 2 DAYS! I can't tell who I'm more excited to see, my friends or Elise.

I can't wait for that feeling I get when I first turn that key. I get chills just thinking about it.

Had some help from a pro. ComboFix. Never heard of it, maybe you have, but got it deleted and comp is back and running again

That's what I get for going without a virus protector though. Time to be more careful

Any of you guys got any free history reports? I think I"m gonna pull the trigger and trade my 540i for this:
1995 M3
109k
5 speed
Supersprint catback
Raceland coilovers
17 or 19" wheels, both have new tires
Alpine White
Manual vaders

Rebuilt title due to THEFT. I wanna make sure its Theft, and not water/collision/etc....

Here's the ad, I could've sworn he said racelands.. Might've been the ground control kit, I just remember it was one of those cheap kits...

And yes those horrid stickers are vinyl.. And yes, the trim would be going back to black..

http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/2076224263.html


Ultimately, I'm looking to turn around and sell it (go figure lol) because as much as I like BMWs, my e30 is good enough, and I want a ducati for spring

Well good luck though I say you will miss that 540i. The E39 is the best BMW in terms of design and imo the E39 M5 is the best BMW ever made.

No doubt I'll miss it, I like this car a lot
but the guy I traded my M3 to (for this 540i) is gonna give me a great deal on the ACS Type 3s I traded him, so those are gonna go on this M3, I'm gonna take off those gay stripes, repaint the trim, and hopefully sell it for more than I could get for the 540i with its current issues...

Ultimately I hope for this: take the money I just got for selling my bike, + the money I get for selling this M3, and buy a 2007-2009 Ducati 1098

I'm not a big bike guy at all but I would buy a Triumph Daytona.

I've ridden an 06 daytona triple, nice bike

After owning 3 Honda 600 sportbikes, I'm itching to get a bigger displacement bike, and I'm either gonna go big or get nothing
